KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

Kruger National Park, nestled in the northeastern corner of South Africa, stands as one of Africa’s most iconic and cherished wildlife reserves. Established in 1898, it spans nearly 20,000 square kilometers, making it one of the largest game reserves on the continent. The park is renowned for its extraordinary biodiversity, encompassing a stunning array of ecosystems, from dense woodlands to vast savannahs. Home to the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhinoceros), as well as an astonishing variety of other wildlife, Kruger offers visitors a unique opportunity to witness untamed nature in all its splendor.  Below you have access to download our guides, maps and sightings checklists.

Sighting the “Big Five” has become something of a quest for many people when on safari, and the Kruger National Park has more than its fair share of these, with an estimated 1,500 lion, 17,000 elephant, 48,000 buffalo and 1,000 leopards. It should certainly not be a pre-requisite of a safari to see these or even a priority, as there are plenty of other fascinating animals and birds in the African bush.

Kruger is one of the premier game-watching destinations in the world. Approximately 147 mammal species occur in the park. It is possible to see all the classical African big game, including elephant (KNP Elephant Census Summary), black and white rhino, hippopotamus, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, warthog and many antelope species. Large carnivores include lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena. There are also many smaller mammals equally enticing species.
